Some of the coolest women in SF/F are moms

My newest at The Portalist lists 8 of my favorite moms of speculative fiction:

These women come in many forms, from the women who raised us to the teachers and role models we’ve found in the world around us—even in fiction.

While I couldn’t possibly fit them all on one list, here are eight genre fiction mother figures I’m grateful for this Mother’s Day.

Find out who else (besides The General) is on the list, and tell me about some of YOUR favorite moms in sci-fi.


Let me nerd-name your new kitten over at The Portalist

Do you like pun-filled cat names? How about pun-filled cat names about the Mother of Dragons????

This is my latest at The Portalist, but you can check out my other work on the site as well.
